The Myth And The Mythological Being Harpy - Poem by Muzahidul Reza

The Myth And The Mythological Being Harpy
7 December,2018


A rapacious monster named the Harpy
Described well in ancient mythology
One of those, a beautiful mythological being
Once was tempted by a royal king;

They hovered, hovered and hovered
To prey any one that they aimed,
Some a foolish king being prompted
Day after day for any of them waited;

Luckily, once on a late spring day
Near the field of newly cutting hey
One harpy, anyway, had been seen
Instantly the news reached the king;

The king did loudly express great sorrow
Cried, "I will be there from tomorrow"
And lamented all the while in the court
That left nobody in a little comfort;

One day something remarkably happened
One harpy the king suddenly watched
It was hovering around the palace
The king took it as the great chance;

To face it the king climbed up a top roof
At that moment on his head was royal cap,
While rounding the harpy was a little slow
By chance on king's crown it put its one claw;

Without delay it flew away with the crown
What king was able to notice very soon,
At once he sent some strong forces
To recover the crown with both claws;

The royal forces marched for harpy
Harpy hurriedly flew from that territory,
The frustrated march returned the palace
But without crown the king they did face.

    Good use of myth, fantastic story, very interesting, I find more interest in the following lines
    They hovered, hovered and hovered
    To prey any one that they aimed,
    Some a foolish king being prompted
    Day after day for any of them waited; so humorous
